President Mauricio Macri held a bilateral meeting with his South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, at the Olivos Presidential Residence, where they discussed the possibility of increasing the purchase of Argentine agricultural products and having Korean companies participate in different projects in Argentina.
Macri met with Moon Jae-in and officials of both governments before the second and final day of the G20 Leaders Summit, at the Costa Salguero headquarters in the city of Buenos Aires.
"Korea is a relevant partner and we have to work to expand our relationship because we can increase our potential much more," Macri said.
He also asked his counterpart in South Korea to analyze the possibility of increasing the volume of agricultural export products, especially meat and fresh fruit.
In that sense Moon said that "there are very good agricultural and livestock products here and we hope that Argentina increases its presence in our markets."
Moreover, Macri invited Korean companies to invest in Argentina taking advantage of the Public Private Participation (PPP) program for infrastructure development.
There are important firms in that country that could participate in the second bidding program we'll be launching soon to build bridges, highways, and high-voltage lines, he said.
Presidents Macri and Moon also agreed to work so that there are direct flights between Buenos Aires and Seoul soon.
